Wellesley College Science Center (Ongoing completion ~ Summer 2021)
CORE Product: CORE Gravel 50-35
The existing Science Center was constructed in the 1920s and expanded in later decades, while making the most of one of the college's most cherished assets—its historic landscape. The current plan will modernize existing infrastructure, while creating new spaces to sustain Wellesley's position at the forefront of science education. The design concept envisions the Science Center as a "living laboratory," with strong connections to the surrounding landscape. The design opens up the fortress-like buildings to the outdoors, and also introduces two new gardens that will be used for scientific and ecological pedagogy.
